Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 05 / Trk 08 / In the Art of Stopping (live)

This mix is really starting to age well. I love where it’s going. Finally a home for my long hidden passion for the song-of-one-dimension. This could really go on for weeks.

Thus I give unto the mix this really awesome track-of-1-dimension from Wire’s third incarnation as a band. I prefer this live version—it has more power, more fuzz, and more fun. They attack it’s singular riff with such abandon and reckless repetition.

I hesitated at first, because it didn’t really build on the stripped-down “spindlyness” of the Wedding Present track. But then I noticed that the Wire riff is basically the same melody as Red Shoes, only slightly backwards. It was destined. I can’t wait to see where this goes.
